I am looking for the ancestors of William Nicholls, who came from Devonshire to Binbrook, Ontario, Canada (farming comunity 50 miles west of Niagara Falls, South of Toronto) sometime between 1833-1837 based on the birth information of son George's children.
The William (father) information comes from a gravestone and it is assumed he is the father of George and John, for whom we have the more detailed information.
If I can make this link back to the UK I can begin research on my family there!
I am in Western Massachusetts, USA.
Thanks in advance for any help!
